Fun Fact: Veritas Winery was my dream venue for our wedding back in 2009. If you haven’t heard of Veritas, it’s this gorgeous vineyard and winery tucked inside the little town of Afton, Virginia. Just a few short minutes from Charlottesville, but just secluded enough to feel like a quiet destination in the hills and valleys of Central Virginia. This place is a dream. The ballroom is stunning and overflowing with natural light. It has draped ceilings and windows, hardwood floors, beautiful veranda doors leading to the deck and a breathtaking view of the vineyard, just to name a few. It is the complete package.
So, when Shannon and I decided to branch out into the Central Virginia area, I knew just the place! Despite only having seen the venue in pictures, I was already sold. Guys, it did not disappoint. Even the private bridal suite was perfect. So brightly lit, neutrally decorated and overflowing with natural light. In fact, every corner of the wedding spaces is glowing with opportunity for stunning photographs.
The only disappointing part about our whole experience was running out of time! We would have loved to stay longer. Enjoy some wine. Perhaps a few small plates. Take in the view. Alas, it was time to get on the road and head on home. But I’m crossing my fingers for another opportunity to visit. Since we were fortunate enough to be placed on their preferred vendors list, I’m liking the odds 🙂 Or who knows, maybe even a vow renewal in the future. We shall see what the future has in store!
Until then, here are a few of our favorites from the day…
